Serie A

Odds: 2.5


The match between “Napoli” and “Roma” in the old days could be the central meeting of the whole championship, without exaggeration. It was the case, when teams fought seriously for the championship! Now, no one is seriously fighting for the championship with Juventus, but specifically Napoli and Roma are completely limited by shouts from afar.


Napoli does not have the best season, however, the team of Gennaro Gattuso has already managed to get one trophy. This is the Italian Cup, where the Neapolitans beat Juventus in the final, thanks to this victory they secured a ticket to the Europa League and now have the opportunity to relax a bit in the championship.

So far, the “Parthenopeyts” are sixth in the table and behind the fourth “Atalanta” by 15 points, which makes it impossible for them to compete for a ticket to the Champions League. “Napoli” had such a chance in the last round, where it was trying to beat away the points of “Atalanta” as a guest. In an equal game, a 2-0 victory was won by Bergamaski, skillfully using their moments.

Thus, the Napoli’s series of five consecutive victories was interrupted and the remainder of the season turned into a formality for the team, but players will probably fight for prestige.

“Roma” had high hopes for the current season - the management invited Paulo Fonseca, who had to build a team capable of solving big tasks rather than the fight for the Europa League. As a result, the mission of the Portuguese specialist failed, failures in recent meetings raised the press in the press about his resignation, even the name of the successor already sounds - according to rumors, it should be Luciano Spalletti.

While the “wolves” are fifth in the table, they have no longer a real chance to impose a fight on Atalanta - the backlog is 12 points, which will be unrealistic to lose to the Bergamaskes, who have gained hold and Roma itself will have a stable finish in the tournament too.

In the last rounds, the game of “Roma” was not impressive, to put it mildly. Iin the match with “Milan” it all ended in a 0-2 defeat, which put an end to a series of Romans of three consecutive victories. Fonseca decided to put in a reserve squad for the next match with Udinese, for which he was instantly punished. Zebras scored two goals for Roma, who played the majority of the match in the minority.


Napoli has already lost the chance to compete for the Champions League and can now afford to play calmly, without unnecessary nerves, because the ticket to the Europa League is already in its pocket and the battle in the Champions League starts only in a month. Despite the defeat from Atalanta, the Neapolitans as a whole, look very solid in the game, they have no personnel problems, so Roma will face a difficult test today.

After a series of failures, “Roma” will probably try to rehabilitate itself, the “wolves” will probably add to the attack, so it makes sense to count on an effective match, but the “wolves” are unlikely to be able to sway their victory in Naples.

In our opinion, hosts will not lose and the match will be productive. We offer a combined forecast - “Napoli” will not lose + total over (2.5) goals. In the 1xBet, such an outcome is offered with a coefficient of 2.50

Our prediction - Total under 2,5
